Tifajek Mud Pool and Hot Springs Management will be launching their new thermal pool at Wailoko, Sabeto, in Nadi today.

The business is a small family-owned enterprise which is trying to turn a unique all-natural thermal and mud pool treatments into a viable tourism business.

The launch will be officiated by the Australian High Commissioner to Fiji, Magaret Twomey.

The investment has come so that the growing demand from tourists in particular from cruise ships that are keen on trying the mud pools, can be catered.

The Tifajek Mud Pool owned by Miliana Racule has been supported by the Market Development Facility.

She said: “The new thermal pool represents a good business opportunity for us to cater for exclusive group bookings from our inbound tour partners.

“We will also be able to cater for the increase in demand from our clients.”

The business offers therapeutic mud and thermal pool treatments, therapeutic massages, and locally produced handicrafts.

Tifajek employees are men and women from the adjoining community who come from farming backgrounds.

The presence of Tifajek in the Sabeto community provides community members with opportunities around earning incomes.

So far with the partnership under the Market Development Facility, the business has engaged a local landscape architect for designing the upgrade of tourist facilities on-site.

This will ensure retention of the natural character and beauty of the hot pools and surrounding landscape.

It is also working its way to try and strengthening the financial management capacity for better management of the business expansion.
